Dual Monitor Taskbar is a clever utility for Windows 7 that allows you to have a task bar on each screen.

Windows 7's taskbar is great, allowing previews and hover focus, but it can become difficult seeing which windows are open on which screen just from looking at the one taskbar. Dual Monitor Taskbar fixes this by putting another taskbar on the monitor that doesn't have one. This allows the user to better understand which windows are open on which screen.

Dual Monitor Taskbar fuctions almost identically to the standard Windows taskbar. Features like hover focus, show desktop, and preview still work flawlessly.

There are ton of options for Dual Monitor Taskbar. You can auto hide, show/hide the click, use large labels, change the position of the task bar, and more. You can even create rules for specific programs. There is even an option to add a second start button to Dual Monitor Taskbar, though that may be confusing.

Overall, Dual Monitor Taskbar makes the logic of grouping windows much improved for Windows 7. If you are a dual monitor user, Dual Monitor Taskbar is a must-have utility.
